1979-06-22 Wow I am listenin to a portion of this show before I go to work. Struggling Man is a very enjoyable track.

1979-03-07 Another Star is a highlight from this show for me. Very nice bass line for you John Kahn fans out there. Also check out Soul Roach. Amazing horn section during this song.

I do want to remind anyone who hasn't heard this band that Jerry is not in the front as he is with other projects. Don't let that scare you away because it seems Jerry saves everything for when he does step out of the shadows. I would have liked to hear this band do more shows. It is brilliant playing from all musicians that were involved.

Gopher's statement leads me to a hypothesis that there is little to no fanning in Reconstruction shows.

I'm not sure, I haven't listened to much, but everything I have heard sounds like music that would be played at a gay bowling alley.

This is the funniest exchange of arguments yet. I got here a couple of time just to read them and it makes me laugh all the time Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

I do like Reconstruction, thanks for the uploads Dogstarz.

And horns. Lots and lots of horrible horns. Blech.

I tend to agree with Gopher. The Reconstruction shows do have some merit, but a lot of times the jams and such are pretty scripted. It really seems to lack a lot of the fluidity that I really like about GD music when things are going well. To my ears, the horns are always at break "X," Merl is always at break "Y," Jerry is always at break "Z." And, while the other parts of the band obviously provide a framework for the soloist, it really seems to me more like a vehicle for long solos more than interactive exploration. Even if you love horn sections (which I do), they can get to sounding pretty repetitive after a few tunes. There are a lot of reasons the GD tried horns (fall '73), and even more reasons the horns weren't permanently added to the core group. A little of the horns, like Reconstruction, goes a long way.

Horns don't bother me in general, but Garcia never seemed to be able to put together a band that used them successfully.

Speaking of horns: I am totally loving "Treme," a new HBO series.It's got horns up the wazoo and tons of music popping up all over the place.
